It’s either the sending unit in tank. Or there’s an inventor on back of gauge cluster that changes 12v to 6v that’s intermittent. At least that was my problem


Possibly there is a hole in the pickup tube inside the fuel tank, when the fuel drops to that level it can’t pull any fuel so it runs out is gas.
